    Exporting HTML

    I seem to be a fan of doing things the hard way:

    Code:
    ///////////////////////
    void ExportResults()
    ///////////////////////
    {
    if(CursorY == 5)
         {
         fstream file_op("Results.html",ios::out);
         file_op<<
         "<html><head><title>Results</title></head>"
         "<body vlink=""white" "alink=""white" "link=""white" "style=""color: rgb(255, 255, 255); background-color: rgb(0, 0, 0);"">"
         "<center><img src=""RedInk.JPG""></center><br>"
         "<span style=""color: rgb(255, 255, 255); font-family: arial;"">"
         "Format: <br>"
         "Author's Last Name: <br>"
         "Author's First & Middle Name: <br>"
         "Title: <br>"
         "City: <br>"
         "Publishing Company: <br>"
         "Year: <br>"
         "<br>"
         "<br>"
         "Formatted Works Cited Information: <br>"
         "</span>"
         "<br>"
         "<br>"
         "<br>"
         "<br>"
         "<br>"
         "<br>"
         "<br>"
         "<br>"
         "<br>"
         "<br>"
         "<hr>"
         "<span style=""color: rgb(255, 255, 255); font-family: arial;""><font size=""-1"">"
         "&copy Walker Burgin 2004<br>"
         "If you found this program helpful please visit my website at  <a href=""http://www.worldapart.ne1.net"">www.worldapart.ne1.net</a> and leave me a comment in my guetsbook. If you have any questions or suggestions <br>"
         "please send me an email at WalkerBurgin@Gmail.com."
         "</span></body></html><br>";
         file_op.close();
         system("Results.html");
         }
    }
    The idea is to export the results of my program into a webpage so it can be easily copied into a document.
    My problem is that as of now the program exports the html with no quotation marks. I've tried using \" but for some reason they're still
    not coming out, any ideas?

    It should work with the \". They just aren't there even if you do that?

    At no point in your code do you have a single \". All you have are pairs of (incrorrectly placed at times, mind you) double quotes. That should get the strings working for you.

    I know I didn't have any /" in the posted code, I took them back out because they weren't working. Turns out the problem's in the html, not the programming. That's a bit odd though because I made the page with Mozilla composer and copied that into the compiler...I slimmed it down a bit but I didn't do anything that would add the extra "s. At least it's working. Thanks for the help!

    Also note that your html isn't valid per the w3 standard

    Correct Thantos. After all your tags that dont have a closing tag, you need to put a / before the closing >.

    Well I don't think that his programing will crash if he can't put an "/" in fx. the end of his <img> tags No offence.... So why is it important mentioning it?? As mentioned no offence, just curious

    Why not mention a possible problem? Yeah it probably won't make any huge difference but I know from first hand experience how important it is to follow the w3 standard.
